Meanwhile, Sam Rockwell was announced earlier in the night as the victor of Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture, beating fellow nominees like Willem Dafoe ("The Florida Project"), Armie Hammer ("Call Me By Your Name"), Richard Jenkins ("The Shape of Water") and Christopher Plummer ("All the Money in the World"), the latter of whom replaced Kevin Spacey following his sexual assault scandal. Also at the ceremony, Gary Oldman was named the Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for his work on "Darkest Hour", a biopic about British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Among the big winners, "Big Little Lies", an HBO series, won three honours in individual acting categories - Nicole Kidman (Best Performance by an actress in a limited series of a motion picture made for TV), Laura Dern (Actress Supporting Role) and Alexander Skarsgard (Actor in a supporting role).

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award® victor Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, commissioning three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award® nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police.

"Trust me, the women in this room tonight are not here for the food", said McDormand.

McDormand said she was proud to be a woman in the industry.

Oprah Winfrey was awarded the coveted Cecil B. DeMille award, becoming the first black woman to ever win the award.

He expressed his regret and frustration at the situation and that there has not been an improvement despite increased investment. He also defended Minister for Health Simon Harris, saying it is a very hard job and he is very satisfied with his performance.

Guillermo del Toro got the Best Director nod for "The Shape of Water", beating out an all-male nominee line-up. Well, according to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, anyway.

Moss previously won a Globe for best actress in a miniseries or TV movie for "Top of the Lake". "We expect "Three Billboards" to join "The Hunger Games, ' 'Dirty Dancing" and other films that have drawn fans to the locations and the experiences the area offers".

In the TV categories, The Handmaid's Tale and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel did well, with two awards each.

Based on the novel by André Aciman, Call Me By Your Name tells the story of Elio (Timothée Chalamet) who falls in love with Oliver, (Armie Hammer), an American academic who comes to stay at his family's home in Italy during the summer of 1983.

Even here, though, pointed commentary was no more than a breath away.

Prior to the ceremony, most stars wore black on the red carpet, as a mark of solidarity with victims of sexual assault and harassment.
